Question about Olympus FE-330 Digital Camera
The cover for the lens on this camera is 4 small segments that slide back from the center of the lens when the camera is turned on. Our toddler grabbed the closed camera, with fingers on the lens cover, and 1 of the 2 larger segments broke off of the cover. One of the 2 very small segments, located in the bottom corner, that would normally slide off the lens with this missing segment, remains on the lens when the camera is on. I think it's possible that this piece broke off as well, and it's only jammed into that corner, since it's positioned differently than its undamaged counterpart.
Bad idea to try removing that small piece?
We had already begun plans to upgrade to a digital slr when this happened, so I'm thinking we just deal with a lens that isn't covered completely until we get the new one in our hands.

It's not really a problem if the lens cover isnt there. The following actually shows how to repair a broken lens cover. But have a feeling yours may be damaged beyond repair, so the next option is removal of the shutters. Be careful that you don't get any of the rubbing alcohol that's spoken of in the following procedures on the lens itself.
